ETS stands for (Electronic Traction System) or as some call it Traction Control. Your Traction Control is simply turned off.

Really have to know what year the car is because these problems vary from year to year.

It wont turn off. It stays on just to let you know that your car isn't losing traction.

Sources of owners manual are Dealer, Salvage Yard, Ebay, and many on-line sites. Check Engine light will come on when the computer has detected a fault in the emissions system. Scanning the computer will list a fault code that will help to narrow down the problem. EST is, Electronic Spark Timing. I have a 97' Chevy Cavalier, and my check engine light comes on every once and a while. When it does come on the ETS OFF light also comes on...did you mean the ETS OFF light? or the EST OFF light? ETS OFF means the Enhanced Traction System. I took my car to Autozone and had them read the computer and it had something to do with a misfiring sparkplug, I replaced the sparkplugs and now everything is fine.

I have a 1997 Chevy cavelier and it say's ets off check engine I'm curious to what would cause this problem and how do you fix it.

It means you have turned the Traction Control off.

Normally the (Electronic Traction Control) ETS light is on when the ETS is turned off. Make sure the ETS is on and not off when driving at all times winter or summer.

Probably because you have the ETS turned off.

You can replace the dome light bulb in a 2002 Chevy Cavalier by first prying the dome light cover off of the light. Then, remove the bulb and replace it by twisting the bulb from the socket.

ETS is connected to your ABS. ETS is a traction control and is linked to your ABS so to get your ETS light off you'll probably have to fix your ABS to get the light off. On mine, fixing a broken wire on my ABS plug which runs into the hub fixed my problem.

Does 2001 Chevy cavalier have a fuel shut off switch

It is supposed to. ETS (Enhanced Traction System) is turned on and off with that switch. Leave it on. The system is on and working when the light is off.It is supposed to.

what parts do i have to take off, to take off the oil pan on a 2003 chevy cavalier

If this light is lit up it means that your traction control has been turned off. There may be a number of situations where this is normal, check your owners manual for details. Other times you will see this light in combination with the ABS light. They both use the braking system and if there is a problem with the anti-lock braking system they will both shut off.

This is Electronic Traction Control. Yours, it appears is turned off. If you have an owner's manual, it will provide the information you want. If not, get one. In the mean time look closely, and I am sure you will find the on/off switch on the dash or near the shifter.

ok. see the button with the wheels on it near the dimmer switch. It says ETS on it. push and it will light up.

If these two lights come on together then the extra traction sensor is broken and needs to be replaced when the sensor is fixed the check engine light will go off and the ets light will work properly again.

Is it Coble rims fit on a Chevy S 10

Check that your air sensor is plugged in/connected to where it should be - this is the most common reason for ETS light coming on

Take off the + on battery for 10 sec that should clear the code.

You need to have the computer scanned to find the reason why the engine light is on. Some large auto parts stores do this for free Normally the ETS check engine light has nothing to do with the engine running bad. The ETS is part of the traction system in the car. Depending on the age of the vehicle, you might want to disconnect the negative battery cable on the vehicle for a few minutes, and then hook back up. In older vehicles, it will reset the computer and the light should go off. It does this in a 1996 model. Worth a try.. ETS stands for Enhanced Traction System, and has nothing to do with emissions or cooling. But the computer will almost always de-activate the ETS when a problem is detected, and thus turn on the light. This is normal on the Cavalier. The Check Engine light does mean the emissions system has a problem. Have the computer scanned for the codes by someone who is able to interpret the codes and not just throw parts at the problem. This takes skill and knowledge, so take it to a professional, and don't waste money guessing.

The low trac light in your 1998 Chevy Cavalier means your vehicle has low traction. Low traction means the sensors have detected wheel spin and the engine power reduces to prevent wheel spin. You may have a bad wheel sensor.

traction control is off. This mode (when on) uses anti-lock brakes to help stop spinning wheels on snow & ice.
